He shares his story and gratitude below. - ed.]</em></p> <p>The Phish phenomenon has been a constant in my life since <a href="http://phi.sh/951029">October 29, 1995</a>. Over the <a href="http://phish.net/user/Quidley/shows">161 shows</a> I have attended, with <a href="http://phi.sh/191203">the Met</a> being 160, somehow I have managed to have tickets to all but four shows prior to my arrival. The last time I showed up to a show without a ticket was <a href="http://phi.sh/980809">Virginia Beach on August 9, 1998</a>, which was the third anniversary of Jerry Garcia&rsquo;s passing. Oddly enough, I was traveling with my favorite Phish buddy, Henry, aka &ldquo;Bring it on home jam.&rdquo; We arrived two or three songs into the first set, assuming we would only be able to hear the show from outside. Much like the feeling at the Met, we thought, &quot;no way we are getting in.&quot; Out of nowhere, the &ldquo;Virginia Beach Saint&rdquo; miracled us tickets in the 8<sup style="font-size:0.6em">th</sup> row, center. We thanked him profusely, started running to the show, and before we knew it, we were wide-eyed seeing the only <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvjHH_G-4_8">&quot;Terrapin Station&quot;</a> Phish has played to date.</p> <p>At this point the reader may ask, what the hell does this have to do with the Met show? For me, two things: first, my favorite road buddy &ldquo;Bring it on home jam&rdquo; had decided to use his vacation days for the Met and Pittsburg. Second, the anxiety and blind faith of two 25 year loyal followers meeting up to attempt the impossible. Both of us, up to the day of the show, had exhausted all available channels to get tickets to no avail.</p> <p><figure><img alt="Photo by Charlie Dirksen, used with permission" src="https://i.imgur.com/7Nt6w9Q.jpg" /><figcaption>Photo by Charlie Dirksen, used with permission</figcaption></figure></p> <p>Here we are fellow phans, on December 3, 2019, and I have taken a cab into the city and arrived at the Met at 1:30 pm. The scene is pretty loose with people steadily arriving all day who were either on the Sirius/Phish friends and family list, or those lucky enough to win a package. There were a handful of one finger in the air fans hanging at the back of the package winner&rsquo;s line hoping to score their spot with a variety of good trades, including four floors for New Years, and up to $1,000 cash. I roamed around for a few minutes before catching wind of an &ldquo;unofficial&rdquo; sign up sheet for people hoping to get a miracle from Sirius.</p> Tue, 10 Dec 2019 19:00:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@phishnet) Blog Mystery Jam Tuesday Part 399 http://phi.sh/b/5dedf6d7 http://phi.sh/b/5dedf6d7 <p>Welcome to the 399th edition of Phish.Net&#39;s Mystery Jam Monday, the second of December.

Please remember that recaps are written by VOLUNTEER FANS. Their views are entirely their own and are not necessarily shared by anyone who volunteers to work on Phish.net. There is no such thing as an &quot;official&quot; dot net recap of a show. -Ed.]</em></p> <p>Phish fans are not exactly a homogenous bunch and I find the differences in the fanbase generally line up with geography. Fans in the Northeast are the most persnickety. They are capable of providing enormous amounts of energy, but they are also prone to talking over slow songs, smoking cigs indoors, and groaning and shit-talking the show while the music is playing. Fans on the West Coast are a lot more easy going. There is room to move in the GA section, the crowd is more evenly divided gender-wise and in general they are the most pleasant audience to be around. Still, West Coasters lack the fire and grit when it comes to giving energy back to the band, and we all know the band feeds on that and uses it to complete the circuit.</p> <p>The Mountain West fanbase is somewhat harder to pin down, seeing as they&rsquo;ve only played Dick&rsquo;s over the last nine years, and it&rsquo;s a real melting pot of fans from all over the country. Speaking of cannabis, I will say that the audience in Colorado can also be a bit unresponsive, maybe due to the strong legal weed, but also possibly due to the vibes dissipating slightly in the large open air venue. Fans from the Midwest are a rowdy bunch, more willing to display enormous amounts of energy without discrimination, but also willing to talk over slow songs like their Northeast counterparts. I think the term &ldquo;blind unfocused rage&rdquo; works well to describe them.</p> <p><figure><img alt="&copy; 2019 Phish (Rene Huemer)" src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/2019-12-09 - Trey Mike Guelah Rene Huemer.jpg" /><figcaption>&copy; 2019 Phish (Rene Huemer)</figcaption></figure></p> Mon, 09 Dec 2019 15:01:57 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@phishnet) Blog Phish 2019-12-08 http://phi.sh/191208 http://phi.sh/191208 <p><span class='set-label'>Set 1</span>: <a href='http://phish.net/song/sigma-oasis' class='setlist-song'>Sigma Oasis</a><sup title="Phish debut.">[1]</sup>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/buried-alive' class='setlist-song'>Buried Alive</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/guelah-papyrus' class='setlist-song'>Guelah Papyrus</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/my-sweet-one' class='setlist-song'>My Sweet One</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/everything-is-hollow' class='setlist-song'>Everything is Hollow</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/the-curtain' class='setlist-song'>The Curtain</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/mound' class='setlist-song'>Mound</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/brian-and-robert' class='setlist-song'>Brian and Robert</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/crazy-sometimes' class='setlist-song'>Crazy Sometimes</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/frost' class='setlist-song'>Frost</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/breath-and-burning' class='setlist-song'>Breath and Burning</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/alumni-blues' class='setlist-song'>Alumni Blues</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/letter-to-jimmy-page' class='setlist-song'>Letter to Jimmy Page</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/alumni-blues' class='setlist-song'>Alumni Blues</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/its-ice' class='setlist-song'>It's Ice</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/walls-of-the-cave' class='setlist-song'>Walls of the Cave</a></p><p><span class='set-label'>Set 2</span>: <a href='http://phish.net/song/after-midnight' class='setlist-song'>After Midnight</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/stealing-time-from-the-faulty-plan' class='setlist-song'>Stealing Time From the Faulty Plan</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/energy' class='setlist-song'>Energy</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/soul-planet' class='setlist-song'>Soul Planet</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/wingsuit' class='setlist-song'>Wingsuit</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/i-always-wanted-it-this-way' class='setlist-song'>I Always Wanted It This Way</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/petrichor' class='setlist-song'>Petrichor</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/boogie-on-reggae-woman' class='setlist-song'>Boogie On Reggae Woman</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/risecome-together' class='setlist-song'>Rise/Come Together</a></p><p><span class='set-label'>Encore</span>: <a href='http://phish.net/song/pebbles-and-marbles' class='setlist-song'>Pebbles and Marbles</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/beneath-a-sea-of-stars-part-1' class='setlist-song'>Beneath a Sea of Stars Part 1</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/izabella' class='setlist-song'>Izabella</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/chalk-dust-torture-reprise' class='setlist-song'>Chalk Dust Torture Reprise</a><p class='setlist-footer'>[1] Phish debut.<br></p> Sun, 08 Dec 2019 00:00:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@Phish.net) Setlist Charleston2 Recap: "Split Open The Crosseyed Little Drummer Boy In The Dirt" http://phi.sh/b/5ded3c46 http://phi.sh/b/5ded3c46 <p><em>[We would like to thank user Suzy Barros for recapping last night&#39;s show.]</em></p> <p>Being a relatively new resident of SC I was especially excited when the Charleston shows got announced as a 3 night run at the end of this fun unexpected Island toury 2019 revamp replete with wildly controversial Sirius XM &ldquo;OH MY GOD PHISH IS SELLING OUT WHAT WILL WE DO&rdquo; gig. I thought all of the shows thus far had had lots of good playing and fun song selection (especially once it was figured out that there would be no repeats). The drawback of no repeats being of course that you have, say your &quot;<a href="http://phish.net/song/ghost">Ghost</a>&quot; which I enjoyed the hell out of as a <a href="http://phish.net/setlists/phish-december-01-2019-nassau-veterans-memorial-coliseum-uniondale-ny-usa.html">Nassau</a> opener and thought it had a really lovely bliss jam thrown in there but now there won&rsquo;t be any 18-minute dark mind expanding/exploding &quot;Ghost&quot; to look forward to. The other drawback being (and you can call this a drawback or a plus depending on what songs are played I guess) but it makes for an even more schizophrenic than usual setlist as in tonight&rsquo;s situation. With Phish you just gotta take what they give you and hope for the best.</p> <p><figure><img alt="&copy; 2019 Phish (Rene Huemer)" src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/12:7:19 Crowd and Lights - Rene Huemer.jpeg" /><figcaption>&copy; 2019 Phish (Rene Huemer)</figcaption></figure></p> Sun, 08 Dec 2019 02:00:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@phishnet) Blog Phish 2019-12-07 http://phi.sh/191207 http://phi.sh/191207 <p><span class='set-label'>Set 1</span>: <a href='http://phish.net/song/fluffhead' class='setlist-song'>Fluffhead</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/ocelot' class='setlist-song'>Ocelot</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/nellie-kane' class='setlist-song'>Nellie Kane</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/the-dogs' class='setlist-song'>The Dogs</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/reba' class='setlist-song'>Reba</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/halfway-to-the-moon' class='setlist-song'>Halfway to the Moon</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/train-song' class='setlist-song'>Train Song</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/guyute' class='setlist-song'>Guyute</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/strange-design' class='setlist-song'>Strange Design</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/moonage-daydream' class='setlist-song'>Moonage Daydream</a></p><p><span class='set-label'>Set 2</span>: <a href='http://phish.net/song/the-connection' class='setlist-song'>The Connection</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/mr-completely' class='setlist-song'>Mr. Completely</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/crosseyed-and-painless' class='setlist-song'>Crosseyed and Painless</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/dirt' class='setlist-song'>Dirt</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/cool-amber-and-mercury' class='setlist-song'>Cool Amber and Mercury</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/split-open-and-melt' class='setlist-song'>Split Open and Melt</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/crosseyed-and-painless' class='setlist-song'>Crosseyed and Painless</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/split-open-and-melt' class='setlist-song'>Split Open and Melt</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/a-life-beyond-the-dream' class='setlist-song'>A Life Beyond The Dream</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/wilson' class='setlist-song'>Wilson</a> > <a href='http://phish.net/song/the-squirming-coil' class='setlist-song'>The Squirming Coil</a></p><p><span class='set-label'>Encore</span>: <a href='http://phish.net/song/grind' class='setlist-song'>Grind</a>, <a href='http://phish.net/song/frankenstein' class='setlist-song'>Frankenstein</a> Sat, 07 Dec 2019 00:00:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@Phish.net) Setlist Phish Fans Fund Carolina Music http://phish.net/news/1575186453 http://phish.net/news/1575186453 <p>The all-volunteer, fan-run&nbsp;<a href="http://www.mbird.org/">Mockingbird Foundation</a>&nbsp;is once again celebrating Phish tour by making unsolicited Tour Grants supporting a music program near each of the venues at which the band will perform.

My name is Bill and I am substituting for my brother-in-law Martin (<a href="http://phish.net/user/Doctor_Smarty">@Doctor_Smarty</a>) for this article. He had intended to tell you guys about the Phish concert at The Met last night, but there was a problem. I am subscribed to SIRIUSXM and he isn&rsquo;t. When I got the email asking me if I wanted to go to the concert, I entered the drawing assuming I could just give the tickets to my brother-in-law and he and his wife could go see their favorite band. Unfortunately, the tickets were non-transferable, so my brother-in-law and his wife stayed back in Oregon instead of coming out to spend Thanksgiving with the rest of our family. That meant that me and my wife went to the concert instead. He told me that you guys would be interested to know how it all went down, so this is my attempt to do that. Obviously I won&rsquo;t know any of the lingo you guys usually use to talk about this stuff. But here goes.</p> <p>I&rsquo;m not very big into going to live concerts to be honest. I&rsquo;m more inclined to be at home with a glass of Crown Royal and puff on a Cuban cigar while sitting next to my fire pit listening to classic rock on my Sonos. In fact, the only concert I have ever been to before last night was when @Doctor_Smarty took me and his sister (my wife) to see Guns N Roses at the Florida Suncoast Dome on December 28th, 1991. That was quite an experience, let me tell you. But probably best I don&rsquo;t. Suffice to say, I had not been back to a concert since. I also never listen to Phish Radio on SIRIUSXM. My favorite channel is Classic Rewind. My favorite band is arguably, with all due respect to Bob Dylan, Bearsville Records&rsquo; greatest artist...FOGHAT!!. Man...I just can&rsquo;t get enough of that &ldquo;Slow Ride&rdquo; if you know what I mean? Alright, take it easy. As you can imagine, other than when Martin comes to visit, I haven&rsquo;t really heard any Phish and don&rsquo;t really know the songs. My ears were a blank canvas in that respect. After last night, I&rsquo;m feeling like they are more like one of those Jackson Pollock splatter-gram deals now. Are rock concerts always like this?</p> <p><figure><img alt="Photo &copy; https://twitter.com/aznpix Andrea Nusinov" src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/met4.jpeg" /><figcaption>Photo &copy; https://twitter.com/aznpix Andrea Nusinov</figcaption></figure></p> Wed, 04 Dec 2019 09:45:06 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@Doctor_Smarty) Blog Mystery Jam Tuesday Part 398 http://phi.sh/b/5de61e85 http://phi.sh/b/5de61e85 <p>Welcome to the 398th edition of Phish.Net&#39;s Mystery Jam Monday, the first and easiest of December.

The land of sports cars smashed into trees with smoke slowly rising from them and no driver or passengers to be found. The only island you can visit where you&#39;ll see a housewife driving a fat Benz with a vanity plate that reads XANAX. Long Island, where you can advertise that you&#39;re driving on Xanax with no recourse.</p> <p style="line-height:1.38">Which naturally leads us to Long Island&#39;s prodigal son: Billy Joel. Many of us in the Phish community know of Mr. Joel&#39;s real and/or exaggerated and/or entirely fictional rivalry with Phish (for hogging MSG every New Year&#39;s Eve despite being a &quot;second rate cover band&quot;); but what y&#39;all might&#39;ve missed is that Mr. Joel already had a longstanding rivalry with Long Island for requiring that he drive his sports cars &quot;safely&quot; and &quot;on the road.&quot; For when I was in high school <a href="https://nypost.com/2004/04/26/billys-latest-smash-crashes-car-into-home/" style="text-decoration:none">Mr. Joel wrecked his third hot rod in two years when he swerved off the road, over the curb, across the lawn, and into a sleeping old man&#39;s living room</a>. And while this sleeping old man was probably the only Long Islander who didn&#39;t double as a Billy Joel fan (a Piano Fan?), when the police arrived on the scene, the officers were quite starstruck. Harkening back to moments ago when we were discussing a brazen use of Xanax while operating heavy machinery: despite driving directly into someone&#39;s house, Mr. Joel was not given a breathalyzer test.</p> <p style="line-height:1.38">So what was going to happen to us tonight? Would a fuming Billy Joel drive through the center of Shakedown? And more importantly, was Phish going to mow down our psyches and egos with some searing, soaring, and face melting hetty jams?</p> <p style="line-height:1.38"><figure><img alt="&copy; 2019 Phish (Rene Huemer)" src="http://smedia.pnet-static.com/img/2019-12-01 Nassau - band (Rene Huemer).jpg" /><figcaption>&copy; 2019 Phish (Rene Huemer)</figcaption></figure></p> Mon, 02 Dec 2019 12:28:00 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@phishnet) Blog Phish Fans Fund Wyandanch Music http://phish.net/news/1575185752 http://phish.net/news/1575185752 <p>The all-volunteer, fan-run&nbsp;<a href="http://www.mbird.org/">Mockingbird Foundation</a>&nbsp;is once again celebrating Phish tour by making unsolicited Tour Grants supporting a music program near each of the venues at which the band will perform.

When you think about it, there are all sorts of things to be worried about when crossing a bridge. There are scores of bridges that have simply collapsed because of structural integrity issues. Many bridges often span high altitudes which compound the issue for those with a fear of heights (acrophobia) as well. Likewise, many bridges sway in the wind which isn&rsquo;t particularly good for those with a fear of wind (ancraophobia). Let&rsquo;s not forget many bridges cross water and people with aquaphobia likely aren&rsquo;t too thrilled about driving over a large body of water....</p> Tue, 12 Nov 2019 20:35:29 GMT donotreply@phish.net (@tmwsiy) Song
